Kim Dotcom offers $14-K bounty for Mega breaches
MANILA, Philippines - Constant improvements seem to be the name of the game for Kim Dotcom's Mega, the successor to file-sharing website Megaupload.
After launching to a "massive" response on January 20, Dotcom has made an open call to hackers around the world through Twitter to expose security issues in Mega.
#Mega's open source encryption remains unbroken! We'll offer 10,000 EURO to anyone who can break it. Expect a blog post today.— Kim Dotcom (@KimDotcom) February 1, 2013
The prize for finding a fault? 10,000 Euro (Approximately US$14,000).
The Next Web notes that the emphasis on improvement by quashing bugs and security flaws during beta is meant to add on to measures in place to increase security for the site.
Additional details will reportedly be made available later, so enterprising coders will want to watch Kim Dotcom's Twitter and the Mega blog for the official announcement. - Rappler.com
